We arrived hot and frazzled having struggled to find the hotel. The man on reception sent us into the tranquil garden with a beer (complimentary) to cool off. This we did admirably and soon recovered our sense of humour. The hotel is easy to find if you turn off the Avenue Xuan VVIII at the lights and stop at the bollards into the old town the reception will let you in. You can then securely park your car 5 - 10 minutes walk away. The hotel is really lovely. Comfortable beds, clean towels, loads of hot water. Our room had a gallery with sofa and table overlooking the garden. The garden does get busy in the afternoons with people having drinks and coffee, but we always found a space and it was never intrusive. We thought the breakfasts were great, loved the local bread with oil and tomatoes, the croissants and honey and the almond cake were all super. The staff could not have been better, friendly and helpful but not overbearing. They lent us a booklet in English with recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing and excursions. Yves Rocher toiletries were a nice touch, as was the library on the second floor. would certainly recommend this hotel for visitors to this charming city.
